“Amazing way to see the island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

We came across giggling ghekko tours through tripadvisor just before we left and booked onto two tours: the full day exclusive and the saturday night fever tours. We had an amzing time on both trips and would highly recommend anyone going to boa vista to contact them and arrange a tour.

“Great trips - highly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

What an amazing time we had on the half day tour, Jen has been a great tour guide, told us a lot of interesting facts about the islands and other stories :-) we went to couple of stunning beaches, stopped in the old town (the name of which i do not remember - sorry) and Sal Rei. Then ended the tour with a refreshment at a stunning beach bar & lounge. Drive was bumpy but so great seating at the back of a truck, breathing fresh air and enjoying the views! Jen was very accommodating to our needs and let us explore at our own pace. We were so happy with the 4 hour tour we booked a last minute space to attend Saturday fire dance and dinner party at the very same beach bar and we were not disappointed at all. Beautiful sunset, great show and food and Jen and Richard kept us entertained throughout too! We felt like on a day out with friends rather than a tour company :-) Thank you so much guys, you are fabulous! I will highly recommend to anyone going to Boa Vista! A & D.

“clive & lesley B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

we booked this trip before getting to Boa Vista after reading all the good reviews it was as good if not better than thay all say. we were picked up 5 min early always a releif and made to feel really welcome by our guide Jen and the other adventurers only 6 of us in total + driver who made you feel safe riding in the back of the pickup truck with his careful driving over some fairly rough terrain. We were taken to some marvellous deserted beaches and a mini desert. Jen leaves plenty of time to wander have a swim or just take in the stunning views and take all those photos to show off with. We finished it all off with a very nice 2 course meal in a lovely beach side restraunt (included in price of trip). its all very personal and Jen imparts lots of local knowledge answering most of our questions about the island. This is so much better than the major tour operators with there pile em high get as much money out of you attitude . Book this one you wont be left feeling ripped off.

“Best half day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Tripadvisor rocks! Without their expertise at our fingertips I doubt we would have come across Giggling Gecko. The trip starts early (well early for me on holiday) but was well worth the effort, the visit to Santa Monica beach when we were the only 6 people in the world was magnificent, Varandinah (apologies for the spelling) superbly unspoilt. Jen was a mine of useful information, the dragonflies a sight to behold and the unspoilt scenery just capped a wonderful morning. The icing on the cake was the final drinking spot. Wished we had ordered a Cuba Libra. PS pleased we chose to sit inside as I doubt Mum might have been so enthusiastic. Very pleased to see you are launching an additional tour to the north of the island this just gives us another excuse to come back to see you. Wonderful informative website - good luck for the future guys
